Your help is needed--Donate a backpack today!

Help our area children start the school year right. The Fill a Backpack, Fulfill a Dream Backpack and Supplies Collection is wrapping up and number of children in need are outnumbering the backpacks collected.

We need at least 100 additional backpacks and supplies by the end of the day. Fill a backpack with traditional supplies: pencils, pens, glue sticks and notebooks, or make a monetary contribution for the purchase of supplies.

Items can be dropped off at MACCI, Marshfield Savings Bank, Pioneer, Associated Bank or the United Way office.

Please help spread the word of the need, we just hate the thought of children starting the school year without the supplies they need to help them succeed.
